Five (celebrity-approved) locations to soak up the sun in this winter
Say hello to a warm December!
We may already be well into December, but that doesn't mean you have to put your travel bucket list on hold. No, fun has become year-round and there's no excuse anymore to wait until summer to jet off to some extravagant getaway. Just take a look at the Instagrams of Bella Hadid, Kourtney Kardashian and Sofia Richie; one scroll through their piña colada-filled coconut in hand feed, and you'll be booking that Instagram-appropriate trip of your own. Come rain or shine, Hollywood knows how to vacation and a bit of cold weather isn't going to stop them.
Yes, we're here to make the case for winter vacations, be it a warm sandy beach or a snowy wonderland; now is the time to take advantage of that winter holiday time to travel the globe. Take Kendall Jenner for example; the reality star-turned-supermodel took advantage of Miami Art Basel, and turned a culture-fueled week into a chance to soak up the last of Florida's summer rays. Alongside bestie Bella Hadid and an impressive corral of friends, the crew set the example on how to do Miami; from chilling on a luxury yacht and lounging in the warm weather to hitting up parties with a lot of other famous faces, they took the city by storm and made sure we all got to see it.
Last month, supermodel Emily Ratajkowski made her way to the sunshine paradise land that is the Maldives with her equally stunning husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard. The duo, who let their hair loose at the Waldorf Astoria, showed us there's no better way to spend December than in the middle of the turquoise-surrounded resort. Taking to Instagram, Emrata shared several pics of herself not only having fun in the ocean, but also exploring the idyllic spot on bicycle in true Emrata-style, clad only in a teeny mini dress that definitely took some skill to cycle in.
Another celebrity sharing a similar sun-soaked experience was tennis legend Serena Williams; the 38-year-old American gave fans a sneak peak into what a superstar vacation looks like with snippets of her sinking her toes into crystal-white sand, onboard a yacht in the middle of crystal blue waters, and dancing the sunset away with sister Venus by her side.
It seems that Nathalie Emmanuel hasn't gotten her fix of adventure quite yet; the Game of Thrones star chose a spot of sightseeing on her latest trip, exploring the ancient ruins of Egypt while stopping to pose in front of the Great Pyramids of Giza. Her outfit of choice for such an excursion? A paisley printed jumpsuit that would make Indiana Jones swap in his chinos for in a heartbeat.
There's no place like home according to Rihanna's latest snippets; the Barbados-born beauty seemed relaxed and at ease in some up-close private images which showed the songstress #livingherbestlife in her native hometown.
